I used two "Cat in the Hat" panels as well a several coordinated fat quarters from Dr. Seuss Enterprises fabrics by Robert Kaufman. I cut the panels apart and put the individual prints on my design wall in a "pleasing way". After that it was just a matter of filling in the blank spaces in between and around the blocks with strips. Some of those strips are pieced and some are not. It might not be a very scientific way to plan and make a quilt, but it's rather a fun and fast. I then free motion machine quilted it; a piece of cake with my Bernina 820.
Some of the leftover panels adorn the back of the quilt!
I've made this quilt for DD who is going to teach a second grade class next school year. I thought it would be a nice addition to her class room.
The binding, all ready to be sewn on. I love the colour combination and I think I might use it as inspiration for my next (or the one thereafter) quilt.
I leave you with my favorite Dr. Seuss quote:
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
